Zits, Zits GO AWAY!!

 Okay, I can't be alone!!  For the last 10 years I have had zits but I'm now into my thirties and am SICK of them!

I get hormonal zits, they don't really come to a head and just sit there for weeks and weeks, usually around my chin.  Since having my son 5 months ago, they are in overdrive because my period is not back to normal, they just keep coming.
I've tried many many skin regimes including Proactiv.  I find they don't help because they aren't really 'teen' zits, they are hormonal...

Any suggestions would be welcome!!

I use Olay daily facials and they work great even for hormonal zits. but they don't get rid of all of them. but some questions: do you wear makeup? do you exfoliate? what moisturizer do you use? I know these are hormonal zits, but these things also have an effect on them.

 Clinique has a good kit for hormonal zits.

Olay isn't good for zits! It has oil in it!

I feel you! My birth control makes me break out. I never even had zits as a teen. Makes me nuts!
